ShockLine lab research and development

University

Universities need easy-to-use, economical measurement equipment to train future engineers. ShockLine Vector Network Analyzers (VNAs) remove complexity to get students working quickly. By simply connecting either the MS46121B or MS46122B to a user PC and launching the ShockLine software, the VNA is ready for a student to use and learn about RF measurements.

Features

Benefits

1-port VNA with frequency options from 150 kHz – 6 GHz

Major cellular and communication bands are covered for education related to wireless networks communication standards like 2G/3G/4G and WLAN

Standard bandpass time domain with time gating

Students will have an opportunity to learn measurements in both time and frequency domains

Optional Scalar Transmission measurements in a (1 to 1) or (1 to n) configuration

Excellent for engineering projects that require a low cost, multi-port system where scalar transmission only measurements are needed

Features

Benefits

World’s first series of compact VNAs to 43.5 GHz for cost-effective measurements

Explore the measurement challenges facing 5G communications at frequencies including 28-30 GHz and 38-40 GHz

Small 1u high package for efficient use of bench and rack space

With the size of a small laptop, the MS46122B can easily be place into university test benches or integrated into test systems

VNA is controlled by a user PC

Information and setups are not stored on the VNA. Custom measurement setups with automation or post-processing software can be configured from student to student on their own PC.

Model Comparison for the Universities Environment

For requirements beyond the capabilities of the MS46121B and MS46122B, the ShockLine family offers several other VNA models to satisfy the needs of educational users.
